Remember the theme song but not much else
2 September 2005 | by fivefidsSee all my reviews

"Jambo, jambo means 'hello' in a happy kind of an African way. Jambo, jambo means 'let's go' have a happy kind of an African day!" I remember my brother and I used to watch this every Saturday morning when Saturday morning cartoons were king. The Groovy Goulies, Hotwheels, Skyhawks, Smokie the Bear etc. each Saturday morning. Jambo was not a cartoon but we liked it just the same. I still remember that theme song some 36 years later which shows how effective a catchy tune can be when advertising or promoting a product. The opening sequence featured scenes from each episode and I tried to keep track of each one I had seen as they went through them. Each episode featured a different animal and often focused on the plight of a particular species. If nothing else, I did learn that "Jambo" really does mean "hello" in African. Whether or not it's in a "happy kind of way" I guess is up to who says and/or hears it.
